Top Tracks: Hamish Anderson – No Good

With such a tried and tested style as blues rock, forming the backbone of rock music as we know it for generations, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. You need to bring something new to the table, or be very good at what you do. Australian artist Hamish Anderson dabbles in a little of both with his new track ‘No Good’. Channelling the likes of Tom Petty and Ryan Adams, this Americana tinged track offers a warm and welcoming sound with its melodic hooks and the golden glow of the vintage organ sound. ‘No Good’ has plenty of contemporary pop panache to ensure that it grabs your attention right from the start, and ensures that the song stays with you long after in a way that very few modern blues acts manage to pull off. ‘No Good’ is wonderfully accessible and memorable, but the slick and stylish guitar work shows that Hamish can still hold his own against the blues’ heavy-hitters from days gone by.
